I know the Borg Captains don't work for lifers yet...

But please answer this question so everyone will be nice and wait....

If you make a character right now, once the Borg captain deal with available in the C-Store... can you apply this to your current character. A-lot of people are under the impression that they can't make a character yet and are waiting for this to be available. Is this correct? I think this might clear up a lot of the confusion on the forums and in IRC.

Please take a moment and answer this question for the community.
Thanks Guys for all your hard work!

there would be way too much code involved for them to do that....
so the answer is no.

they are to busy getting the code they already wrote to work with thousands of people hitting it at once...they have no time to write new code that will crash when thousands more run it...

You will not be able to "apply" a borg to your captain. Borg's have specific race traits, and there is nothing in game that would allow you to switch them. Same reason nobody can switch to a joined trill.

If you make a human character, later when you activate borg, you can then make a borg. It will not make your human character borg, you will have to start over with the borg.

A: The Liberated Borg begins with the following two traits. You can select another two traits from a general list.

Borg Nanites: +10% Health Regeneration
Description: Ground Trait. Constantly regenerates shields and health.

Efficient: +5 Starship Shield Efficiency, +5 Starship Engine Efficiency, +5 Starship Energy Weapon Efficiency, +5 Starship Auxiliary Systems Efficiency
Description: Space Trait. Provides a bonus to efficiency stats, improving the effectiveness of many of your power management abilities.

The Liberated Borg also has a unique optional trait.

Neural Blast: 30 second debuff. Drastically reduces run speed. Every 4 seconds, Neural Blast has a 40% chance to hold the target for 3 seconds.
Description: Activatable Ground Trait. Inject the target with neural toxins, which continually attempt to hold the target for the duration. Also reduces the target's movement speed


This is from the FAQ.

No it isn't a skin. It is a race you select at the start of the game. It is like picking Human or Andorian. Which means, until they unlock it, any time we spend in game playing is wasted on a character we have no intention of leveling.

from my understanding... it's just a skin... just like cryptic said... login in, create a character, then go to c-store and get the borg character.

They already said they would not do this for Joined Trill characters so it won't happen for the Borg characters either.

too much code... lol they are programmers... they eat code for breakfast. I happen to work with 20 programmers and I know what they can do. There is never a " No we can't situation. "

It's not a skin. You login and claim it so that you can logout and make one at character creation.
